Single crystals of sodium thiosulfate $(Na_2S_2O_3) have been grown from the saturated solution by the evaporation method at the optimum condition. Radiation damages in the crystal by ${\gamma}$-irradiation of $20{\times}10^6$ Rontgen have given rise to paramagnetic centers. The anisotropic spectra of each paramagnetic species have been obtained with the X-band EPR spectrometer at room temperature. When an isotropic D.P.P.H. at g value of 2.0036 is based on. ESR Spectra of the single crystal are recorded for each rotation about the perpendicular a, b and c axis with intervals of $10^{\circ}$ from $0^{\circ}$to $180^{\circ}$ in order to find out the properties of the crystal for anglar variation of the anisotropic peaks. The g values are calculated from the line position between the anisotropic peaks and the isotropic peaks of D.P.P.H. and then principal g values and their direction cosines of the species is obtained by the diagonalization of 9 matrix elements of the corresponding g values. From the analysis of the characteristic principal g values and direction cosines for ${\gamma}$-irradiated $Na_2S_2O_3$ crystal, anisotropic peaks corresponding to $SO_2^+, SO_2^- $are identified and the existences of unidentified and unstable paramagnetic defects are verified.
